Ghosts Ep 116

Drums of Autumn

Week 2

Chapter 2 – In Which We Meet a Ghost

Listen to Podcast!

Summary:

The Merry Fraser Band bury a friend in the creepy kirkyard. They get a terrible fright. They meet the fugitive prisoner and reluctantly help him to freedom. Claire takes a much-needed river bath. Jamie joins her. They swelter in love and heat. Their future is wide open like the vast wilderness before them.

Play by Play:

They have the funds* to bury poor Gavin Hayes thanks to Fergus’s quick thinking and hat passing in the tavern. They need to figure out what to do with Gavin now it is late at night. The priest will not be awake, but they cannot take him into the woods with them to sleep or leave him in the town. Jamie decides they’ll bury him themselves in the church cemetery.

Claire notes the funeral procession (the cortege) is less dignified than usual with Duncan repeating unsavory parts of the lament. Fergus sourly mumbles about the likelihood of getting thrown in jail for disturbing the peace.

The churchyard is quiet and remote. In fact, it’s as dark as a crypt due to the overhanging Magnolia* branches. Moving through the air is described as “pushing aside curtains of black velvet” (DOA, p 35 Nook). If you’ve never been to the southern United States, this is an apt description when the weather is warm. The air is a palpable force. Though nothing like the crisp Highlands air, the mist reminded Claire of the tannasq in the story, Jamie told.

They roamed the graveyard for an open space to bury the body. The men are all well lubricated by alcohol, leaving Young Ian emotionally tender. The effects of the dark cemetery are not lost on Claire either. She feels she’s a ghost herself with the remoteness and isolation of this place.

Industrious as ever, Jamie had taken a candle from the tavern. He says it will be like an Easter vigil. He saw one once at Notre Dame in Paris (DOA, p.37 Nook). Requiescat in pace* is Latin for rest in peace (DOA, p37 Nook).

Young Ian and Jamie take turns digging the hole. Claire recounts how medical students used to steal fresh bodies to practice dissection. “Did they or do they?” Jamie asks. One of Claire’s not uncommon inadvertencies (unintentional or not focusing the mind, in her case eluding to things out of time or referencing now as the past). She remembers the difference between an embalmed body in a clinical setting to this reality. Young Ian injects a story about his father Ian being mistaken for dead and almost taken away by doctors while in prison. Ian always regarded doctors as ghouls henceforth. Claire had been a skilled surgeon in her own time; here she’s merely a wise woman. Claire could never be anything but a physician regardless of title.

Jamie not fearing the ghoulies himself, leans down to kiss Claire. They both have an unexpected sexual response. Per Claire, it’s common for a surge of lust to accompany the presence of death. I was unable to find quality information on this; however, it does make sense the need for release, connection, or feeling good, much like how lust surges after a battle or fight*. Have any of you experienced this phenomenon?

Claire is encouraged to sit because her leg is not long healed from the tibia fracture. Claire is in lust, he touches her, and she envisions dragging him down to the earth and having her way with him. Jamie is no better off getting gooseflesh where she touches him. The spell is broken for the moment as Rollo eyes Claire narrowly.

They go to fetch Gavin. Young Ian is scared in the dark from the story Jamie told. Claire most assuredly tells him it will not be coming for Gavin here. They reach the cart; Claire is happy they will be done with this soon so that they can go to the woods and sleep. Suddenly all hell breaks loose with shrieks of horror. A figure was sitting up from the wagon bed.

 

Rollo launches at the figure, and the ghost screams. Fergus clubs the figure with the spade, yelling at him to stop, pig (DOA, p42 Nook).

It turns out the figure is the prisoner who escaped from the gallows earlier that day. He’s not from hell, or is he? He’s described as a man around 30, muscular, and powerfully built with fair hair. He’d been waiting in the wagon since midafternoon. His name is Stephen Bonnet. He’s no stranger to a fight and likely attracts women easily.

Jamie is sizing up this criminal. He wants to know why he was sentenced to hang. Smuggling and piracy he says. Jamie is trying to decide if he is a good risk to turn in or let go his way. He invokes Gavin’s name to negotiate for them to help him to safety out of town.  Jamie agrees, but Gavin must be buried first.

They made a simple gravestone and cairn. The lit candle was left behind to give Gavin a light to guide his ascent. They leave him with a simple blessing (DOA, p45 Nook).

They were helping Bonnet get passed the military checkpoint. Unlike the prior checkpoints they’d come across during their travels, this one was highly fortified due to the missing prisoner.

They go through the checkpoint process, one of the soldiers stabs the “corpse” to make certain it’s dead. They’re allowed through in the nick of time before Bonnet starts to bleed.

Bonnet has the balls to ask them for some provisions before they drop him off at a set point a few miles away. This sets the tone for the type of man he is. Is there honor among thieves? He’s very mercenary barely grateful for them not turning him in, he insists on the taking him to safety and giving him provisions. They need to watch out for this guy. They discuss his trade in smuggling. Duncan has a dislike for him, and Jamie is suspicious but agreeable to get him on his way.

As they ride along, Claire leans into Jamie, feeling the safety and security of him, she drifts into uneasy sleep. I adore this picture of him pulling her in, and she releases the weight of the world for a moment of relaxation against him.

Jamie urges her to go lie down on the wagon bed; he’s afraid she fall into the road. She changes places with Bonnet and lays her head upon a leather bag of salt. After more uneasy sleep, she wakes to Bonnet and Jamie talking. Jamie explains why he saved him (DOA, p51 Nook). Bonnet calls Jamie an asgina ageli or a half-ghost. One meant to be dead but living with one foot on earth and one in the spirit world. These half-ghosts are supposed to be able to communicate with spirits and with the little people or the Nunnahee (faerie folk or the auld ones). I cannot find Native American Cherokee connection for this concept, except for one Wiki page that needs additional citations.  If any of you are more versed in Native American Lore, please email contact@adramofoutlander.com or call 719-425-9444. They discuss similar Highland lore, though Jamie contends he’s not a savage.

Claire wakes as the wagon stops, Young Ian and Jamie are going to tend to the horses. Claire insists on bathing before finding a place to sleep. She heeds Jamie’s cautions about the currents. She turns finding Stephen Bonnet in front of her. He bids her adieu and she wishes him luck. He mentions how a man makes his own luck. As he leaves she remarks on his walking the ghost of a crippled bear. Another ghost reference for this chapter.

Jamie hopes he didn’t make a mistake in allowing him freedom, saying to Claire, “The crown doesna always pick the wrong man to hang, Sassenach.” He worries he helped a villain go free. (DOA, p53 Nook).

Claire kisses him before her bath in the river; he wants her to stay awake just a bit longer. Someone is still lustful it appears.

Claire disrobes and enters the water. It’s much cooler than the hot night air. The water is fresh and sweet. She drinks. She splashes her body and rinses her hair several times and scrubs her body all over with the fine sand until she glows (DOA, p54 Nook). The imagery is such a relief. Cleansed from the days on the road. Rinsed until fresh. Lying upon the warm rock, she feels tingly and alive. her lustfulness hasn’t left either.

Rollo catches his dinner nearby; Claire is reminded of a wild Rousseau painting.  Her mind wanders to the primitive nature of the New World. It’s vast wilderness and dangers. Freedom and adventure are also out there in that wild.

Her mind continues to wander to Brianna safe in her own time, to the bugs and how she combats them daily (DOA, p56 Nook). Pennyroyal is a mosquito repellant along with basil, peppermint, and others. If Claire went to another time, insects, viruses, and bacteria would indeed affect her just like anyone else. She would not have some time traveler’s immunity by nature or inoculation.

Her mind goes back to Jamie. They hadn’t been intimate in some days with traveling roughly with others near. Claire talking about her dislike of having sex when others were close by affirms my idea that Claire is a bit prudish unless she is having sex with the person she loves. No holds barred in the circle of trust. Following her thoughts, she begins to masturbate wondering out loud where Jamie is. He is of course there watching her silently. She opens her eyes to him six feet away (DOA, p.57 Nook).

We get the full impact of the heat, the sweltering humidity in this delicious sex scene. Always the wordsmith, “Christ your mouth is slick and salty as your quim.” That’s a much nicer word than some he could’ve used. Jamie surmises people would die if they had sex in this heat all the time. Always a Highlander.

They take a dunk in the water before returning to the rock shelf to dry off. He reads Claire’s mind, thinking of the vastness of out there. She talks about how it is in her time. Jamie’s impressed there’ll be Scots in America including the inventor of asphalt, a Scot named McAdam. Claire shares there will be people all the way to California. They also discuss the plight of the Native Americans.  To Jamie, it seems not a problem to kick them off their lands and kill them since they are savages. Claire has a difficult time getting through to him and even brings home the point to the Scots being kicked off their lands.

Deeply happy and content, Claire wonders how long this bliss can last. What will their life be like? Will they be able to stand each other when the day in and day out takes root? Hearing her thoughts again, Jamie asks, “Will ye grow tired of me, do ye think. Once we’re settled?” He won’t tire of her in the flesh because he never did when she was a ghost. He wanted her more on the last day they were together before sending her back. She agreed (DOA, p60 Nook). He was surprised to see her masturbating. He had no idea women did such a thing. He’s in wonderment over the whole thing concerned a woman wouldn’t need a man then.  It’s a sweet exchange between them. She assures him it’s better with a man. This pleases him.

I love the next bit saying making love like this is like being slippery eels (DOA, p62 Nook). Jamie’s a man who aims to please his woman. Laoghaire missed out on some good loving. Their pillow talk or rock talk, in this case, is always interesting and entertaining. It gives us additional insight into the two of them.

Stephen Bonnet is one to watch for. Was the crown right to sentence him to death? I think so. They should’ve listened to their inner voices and turned him in.

This chapter rounds out with more references to stars, life itself.

Drums of Autumn Week 1 Ep 115

Drums of Autumn

Week 1

Chapter 1 – A Hanging in Eden

Listen to Podcast!

Before we begin, we left off Voyager with Claire and Jamie, finding themselves blown off course and landing in Georgia. Duncan Innes, Fergus, and Young Ian were with Claire and Jamie. Marsali is in Jamaica pregnant and waiting for the birth of their baby. John Grey is the Governor of Jamaica. Claire had a broken leg. The Porpoise sunk during the harrowing storm as it followed the Artemis. Yi Tien Cho stayed on Jamaica after killing  Archibald Campbell. He was the fiend and murdered the woman Yi Tien Cho was accused of murdering. Geillis is dead at the hand of Claire. She and Jamie found Geillis in the cave at Abandawe where she was set to sacrifice Young Ian, to go back to the future to fulfill the prophecy through Jamie’s line.

Summary: They are in the New World. Claire is recovered. It’s hot and muggy in Charleston. A friend is hanged. A prisoner escapes. Young Ian stays put. A fur friend is procured. Ale all around. A lament is sung. Plans are made. Claire wants a bath. Jamie is the leader and protector. They need to bury the body, then go north.

Chapter 1 A Hanging in Eden

Charleston, June 1767

They are in Charleston, South Carolina. As indicated by the title of the book and the opening line to this chapter, drums are an important theme.

It’s a hot day and men will be hanged. It is crowded with spectators. A friend of Jamie’s from Ardsmuir Gavin Hayes was among those set to hang. He was mightily drunk per Jamie’s help. He stole 6 pounds 6 shillings worth and would die for it. That’s about $1072 in American dollars today. Can you imagine losing your life for a $1000? When Gavin was hung, Jamie made sure he saw him and was comforted by his presence. A loyal friend is Jamie Fraser.

Claire and Fergus watched the hanging too. It’s not a pretty business. It’s not efficient whether or not the hangman knows his job.

One of the other prisoners makes a break for it. All hell breaks loose, and he seems to get away. They escape the chaos to find Young Ian. Fergus is told to claim Gavin’s body. The Merry Fraser band is rounded out by Duncan Innes being alongside.

Jamie expects to be sending Young Ian back to Scotland as he promised his sister Jenny and Ian.

He’s concerned about their money. Claire cleverly sewed her pocket shut, and Jamie is hiding his portion in his pants. Hopefully, no tart of a harlot tries to pick his breaks.

Young Ian finds them, and he’s exceedingly happy. Jamie intent on getting Young Ian passage to Scotland heads with everyone in tow toward the docks. He attracts attention from the ladies along the way. He’s mindful of his extra package. Turning gems into money was difficult. They were wealthy on paper and functionally poor.

The atmosphere was stuffy, hot, windless, and filled with all sorts of the stench.

The Olivier’s who had helped them after the shipwreck gave them modest transportation and provisions for their trip to South Carolina.

It turns out Young Ian has been playing dice and winning. He also has procured a rather wolfish dog named Rollo.

Jamie playing animal whisperer makes acquaintance with the beast. Ian has it sussed, the dog hunts for himself. Jamie doesn’t think the captain of the ship he intends to send Young Ian home on would want a dog aboard. Looking all too happy, it turns out the ship left three days prior.  Jamie is worried what Jenny will say.

Off to a tavern they go. Jamie needs a drink.

Making plans stay and try to sell a stone and secure alternate passage or head north to Cape Fear, NC where Jamie has family relations. Young Ian thinks it’s grand to go north. He can help be of protection he thinks. This the boy who trouble finds. In his excitement, he names all the things he hopes to meet, Indians, bears, panthers, and the foul creature known as the skunk.

In this unfamiliar place, Jamie is very worried about being able to protect themselves against whomever and whatever they come across. It’s wild and much untamed. He knows people tell stories and they might be fodder for conversation. Word could be out about the gems.

He’s acting as leader of his wee clan of people.

They would feel safer in Cape Fear because of the large Scottish Highlander settlement.

Claire can only think about bathing and removing the clothing she’s been wearing in that scorching heat and sleeping rough in for eight days.

Soldiers come into the pub no doubt searching for the escaped prisoner. Jamie and Duncan were ill at ease with it. Jamie’s tell is a hand curling into a fist or tapping with his fingers.

Fergus arrives aggravated. He’s unhappy with how much the priest/pastor wants to charge to bury Gavin. He’s such one for the insult. It’s hilarious. They have very little money, and that would put them too near pennilessness.

A rag woman made a bargain with Fergus to take the clothing and wash the body. He’s in the cart waiting to for burial.

Duncan is on his way to drunkenness. Poor Gavin. Slainte.

They discuss where to bury Gavin since the priest wants too much money. The wood will not do.

They go on to tell a lengthy story of a night Gavin came across a spirit while looking for an escaped cow. He was mortally afraid of the dark ever after. Until he left home to follow the Bonnie Prince, he never went out after dark.

The cow was waiting outside the croft in the morning looking as if she’d been ridden to hell and back.

Gavin never knew what happened to his wife or son after Culloden. His son had been on the field next to him when the fighting started.

Even with lists kept it would be impossible to find any other existing transported family or those who may be alive in Scotland.

They made the point it might be best to never know for certain what happened to your child, hope could remain.

Jamie and Claire knew Brianna was safe and sound in the 20th century. They had that between them.

With Rollo lying under the table the serving maid was careful to avoid him.

Duncan is drunk and grieving Gavin. Duncan decides they will indeed sing a lament for the man. The taproom responds to his opening notes with near violence until they realize he is singing. Even the dog lets out a woof. He sings the lament in Gaelic.

The other tables joined into the chorus after realizing violence isn’t happening, but they don’t know Duncan is saying disparaging things.

Fergus savvy as ever takes a hat to pass around, and the drunken patrons fill it with many coins.

Claire went out to relieve her bladder and spied the cart. She sees an outline of a body she presumes to be Gavin. She hopes he’d enjoyed the lament.

Claire heard a familiar tune coming from inside the taproom. It’s a drinking song in which its tune was used for the Star-Spangled Banner.

This opening chapter sets the tone for life in the new world. The weather is hot; there’s not much money in circulation to exchange gemstones with, they are outsiders, it’s unfamiliar and potentially dangerous from gossip and all the wild things of the vast wilderness. Jamie is reasserting himself as the leader. Young Ian is staying at least for a little while. Fergus is the faithful if salty sidekick. Marsali is in Jamaica waiting for the baby to be born. Claire is recovered from her broken leg. They have to start over yet again. Jamie and Claire as a recommitted couple stepping into their future. Though near penniless, Jamie’s aunt should be able to assist them.

Eye of the Storm Ep 114

Eye of the Storm 313

Written for television by: Matthew B. Roberts and Toni Graphia

Directed by: Matthew B. Roberts

 

Below are my play by play thoughts. To hear my complete musings, you’ll need to listen to the podcast. Enjoy.

Starz Synopsis: Claire is forced to play a game of cat and mouse with an old adversary as she searches for Young Ian. The Frasers race through the jungles of Jamaica to prevent the unthinkable.

My Summary: Claire is in danger. Young Ian mans up. Unhinged Geillis confronts Claire. The prophecy riddle is solved. Lord John saves Jamie’s neck. Leonard is crushed. Young Ian is being hauled off. Claire is locked up. Jamie frees Claire. They find a dance party. Yi Tien Cho declares his love. Margaret prophecies and channels a child. Yi Tien Cho kills Archibald. Abandawe is reached. Geillis chooses her sacrificial lamb. Jamie gets beat up. Claire stops the traveling. Young Ian is saved. The gems are recovered. Claire remembers the bones. Back to sea, Claire and Jamie play. A storm rises. Woman overboard. Jamie goes in after. They wash up ashore. It’s the New World.

How it played:

  • Holy hell she’s drowning.
  • “I was dead.”
  • A procession of maroons in progress.
  • Where’s her fancy dress? How did she drop off her clothes?
    So, she went back to town changed her clothes then went all the way back to Rose Hall?

  • Claire and Jamie are peering at the scene like Frank and Claire at Craigh na Dun.
  • The ceremony is in full swing.
  • Jinx, Claire it reminds me of the dance at the stones too.
  • And they’re caught.
  • Yi Tien Cho is so gangster, “They are with me.” And the croc head hat wearing leader, nods. Peace out.
  • Campbell is sharing her visions.
  • Yi Tien Cho declares his love for Margaret and her for him.
  • Yay team Cho/Campbell to Martinique they will go.
  • She freaks Jamie out a bit.
  • Creepy she sees Jamie at Culloden.
  • And she sees Claire in the future with the bird.
  • Then Brianna talks through her.
  • Young Ian is at Abandawe.
  • That Maggie, she has some deep skills.
  • Archibald returns.
  • Jamie threatens.
  • Brahan Seer prophecy and the 200-year-old baby. Aha Claire gets it.
  • Claire counts the photos – Bree is the 200-year-old baby.
  • YTC challenges Archie and kills him. Whoa.
  • All the while the ceremony rages.
  • Chicken down.
  • Archie is part of the sacrifice.
  • Abandawe or bust.
  • The stone circle.
  • The cave.
  • Jamie and Claire make a just in case pact.
  • Geillis has Young Ian.
  • Geillis made a circle of gems to sacrifice Ian within.
  • Jamie takes an ass whoopin from Hercules.
  • “A life for a life sweet Claire.”
  • For the greater good. FFS you deserve to die just for saying that.
  • You never loved your baby Geillis.
  • Claire goes in for the tackle!
  • “Dear Geillis, I do not condone murder for the greater good. And please stop being a b*tch. God.”
  • Swashbuckling Claire for the goal. She nearly beheads Geillis. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
  • Jamie frees Hercules.
  • Jamie frees Young Ian.
  • Claire stop looking in the pool. Stop.
  • Young Ian grabs gems. What a merc.
  • They escape the cave and stone circle.
  • Young Ian such a sweet boy.
  • AWWWW Jamie kissing his nephew.
  • Reality hits Claire hard bro.
  • Super Claire breaks down.
  • Dem bones in the future are Geillis. Yep, that’s right.
  • The Abernathy connection, yep you got it now?
  • Jamie comforts Claire as she realizes the bones she examined with Dr. Joe are Geillis.
  • GROUP HUG.
  • Back on the Artemis.
  • “It’s different.”
  • Pro Tip: Wash the soap off before engaging in face to lady bit contact.
  • “Feel free to rough up my tender bits.”
  • All is well, and it’s time for some sexual healing.
  • Talk dirty to me you Scot
  • “We shall see what noises you dinna make then Sassenach.”
  • If the cabin’s rockin’, don’t bother knockin’.
  • A storm is coming.
  • Storm rages.
  • Why would the ship’s surgeon need on deck Claire?
  • EKE so scary the ship is coming apart.
  • That wall of water, WTF are you on deck still?
  • Claire goes overboard.
  • “I was dead.”
  • OMG, she’s going down attached to the rigging.
  • Jamie jumps in after her.
  • She’s sinking. Jamie’s terrified.
  • Love’s kiss.
  • Drags her to surface. Is she alive?
  • “Damn you Sassenach. If you die here now, I swear I’ll kill you.”
  • They float to the shore on ship’s debris.
  • “Hey mister, you alive?” Poke.
  • On the shore, she’s alive.
  • The Artemis is near with survivors.
  • They are in the New World, Georgia.
  • Panning into the New World.
  • The music is glorious.

Final thoughts: I really liked it. I was never bored. The Yi Tien Cho and Margaret relationship is a little hokey, but I’m a romantic, so it passes muster. Yi Tien Cho murdering abusive Archie was shocking and over the top. I’m not sure the label suits him.  Claire and Jamie finally seem settled and comfortable with each other. The tenderness toward each other is moving and speaks volumes without words. The past is washed away. It’s a reset toward the future into their new life together.  There’s the two of them now.
